Big Oils nightmare

The concept is refreshingly simple: make an ultra-efficient car that’s light, has exceptionally low drag, and sips diesel with a small engine. This is the Loremo AG, a car that is a combination of innovative technology and back-to-basics thinking. To be shown at the upcoming car show in Geneva, this German creation claims a fuel economy of 157 mpg with no fancy hybrid drive train, fuel cells, or plug in paraphernalia. Weighing less than a thousand pounds, the sporty rear-wheel drive 4setterr is designed to be maximally aerodynamic.Thee Loremo sports a modest 2-cylinder, 20HPp turbo diesel motor, has a top speed of 100 mph, and does 0-60 in ten seconds. If that sounds like less than elite performance, the anticipated $13,000 price tag should put it in a bit more perspective. The Loremo is due to come onto the European market in 2009. :: Loremo AG via I4U News (thanks to Andrew for the tip!)

I don't think the oil lobbyist will ever let this go to market! Reminds me of my high school days hearing of carburetors that would give you 100 mpg! I wander what happened to them?

Well in 100 years this all will be history!! There will be a whole new mode of transportation (if the world is still here). I'm sure they will find a way to use salt water for fuel.
